UnderGround Forums What happens if Khabib is champ & refuses Conor?

Khabib says that after he beats Tony he will tell Conor to wait in line and beg for a chance to face him until he deserves it.

Obviously Khabib-Conor is probably the fight Dana would want to make if Khabib wins.

Does the champ (assuming its Khabib) have a right to refuse who the UFC picks as a challenger? Especially when the person the UFC wants is not ranked #1 and hasn't fought in over a year?

Why would he turn down the biggest payday of his career for a stylistically advantageous matchup?

why even make this thread?

Khabib doesn't care about money. Money bullshit.Conor will have to beg for the belt back. Khabib time.

Pretty sure it wouldn't be the biggest payday of his career. Do you remember Floyd Mayweather? Read my post again. Why are you so confused?

It's just talk. Khabib is just doing the same thing McGregor did when he took the title and told everyone to come beg him for a shot. Tit for tat. Then he'll fight McGregor. And wreck his world.

The Conor fight would easily be his biggest payday and it wouldn’t even be close. I think he’s saying it makes no sense for Khabib to refuse Conor, therefore this thread makes no sense.

Khabib has no say in whether Conor gets the shot or not.  It's up to Dana, and Khabib will have to take it and like it like a Russian bitch.

Zero chance he refuses that big of a payday. Him saying Conor has to beg is already setting up the shit talking between the two. Smart statement. And if you guys honestly think that Conor hasn’t been wrestling his ass off and training take down defense for the past year you’re mistaken. This guy is always 3 steps ahead with his plans. And before the “ha funny a year wresting to compare with Khabib” I’m not saying that he will be on his level at all. But you better believe he’s doing what he can to get ready to keep the fight standing.

When I said Volkov would be the 1st UFC Champ that was set in stone when it was written.

Sorry to Khabib (seems like a nice guy) and all his fanbase.

The guy's gameplan is to go in and "break" Tony Ferguson...

Not a Conor fan at all, but he’s transcended the belt. He doesn’t need to hold a title to make $$$$ fighting anyone.

McGregor can wrestle for the next 10 years at Iowa State, Michigan and Nebraska and Khabib would abuse him on the mat every single time.

Notice how you left out the part where i stated it still wouldn’t be near Khabibs level. I said he is training to keep it on the feet as long as he can.

If Khabib turns down Conor, the UFC will have a 150lb title fight between McGregor and that kid who KO'd Frankie, or Frankie, or Aldo

Khabib would never deny a red panty night in front of 80K people in Moscow. That's a $20M payday. It's Connor who has no reason to take the fight.

 Conor will sleep that sloppy fucker.  If Johnson could wobble him, Conor will KO his ass.  

He ain’t getting by Tony anyway.  Moot point.

Conor will only won't this fight if Ferguson exposes Khabib in some way. There's a reason he's never defended.

Kebab does as uncle egg says.

 

He may end up champ but he is an employee not an employer.
